Join a daring adventurer on a quest for jungle riches in Action Jack, a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot from IGT. There’s nothing especially original about this treasure hunt but the Free Spins Bonus feature that awards up to 500 free spins complete with 3x multiplier makes it a trek worth making. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 40p and £800 per spin.
The visuals in Action Jack are done cartoon style. They’re not top of the league standard but they do the job well enough. With the green jungle in the background, you’ll see the usual lower value royal symbols on the reels as well as treasure maps and waterfalls that award up to 3.75 times your bet per payline. Next come the entrance to the palace and a jewel which award up to 6.25 times your bet. They’re followed by the miniature icon which pays up to 7.5 times your bet.
The most rewarding of the standard symbols is the volcano. This pays 25 times your bet if you land 5 in combination. Our intrepid hero Action Jack is the wild. He can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. All of the standard symbols plus the wild can appear fully stacked. Better still, these stacked reels can sync on multiple reels to deliver some exciting combinations – this is called the Synchronised Reels feature.
There’s a Free Spins Bonus feature in Action Jack which has the potential to be a good one. To trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the chest full of golden treasure anywhere on the reels on the same spin. After a payout of 3, 10 or 25 times your total bet, you’ll then go on to play out 20, 40 or 60 free spins.
Also thrown into the mix during the free spins round is a 3x multiplier which trebles all payouts. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters results in a retrigger and another round of 20, 40 or 60 free spins. You can retrigger various times to give you 500 free spins altogether.
There’s nothing overly fussy about Action Jack. The combination of simple design and features works well enough though. The base game action is pretty ordinary but the Free Spins Bonus feature can be a cracker thanks to the number of free spins on offer and the multiplier which triples all of your payouts. The volatility here is in the medium range with maximum wins of 3,000 times your stake on every free spin.
We’ve seen plenty of similar video slots to Action Jack. This doesn’t really stand out from the crowd but it’s a perfectly solid performer and certainly worth a look if you like this theme. I also recommend you try NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest which also offers decent wins.
